Today on Pinstripe Alley - 5/21/21

The Yankees are back in town, and they’re getting results as of late.

A lot has happened since the Yankees were last in the Bronx. They went 7-3 on their road trip, picking up another three series wins in the process, and have firmly righted the ship. They ended the trip on a high note, winning three of four from Texas, with a truly special performance from Corey Kluber breaking a 22-year stretch without a no-hitter for the franchise. Oddly enough, the only game they lost that series was the one their ace, Gerrit Cole, started. You can’t predict baseball, Suzyn.

There will be no travel day for the Bombers. Instead, the team welcomes the White Sox into town immediately, and Matt has you covered on the pitching matchups for that series. I’ll have a double-whammy with the minor league recap and the latest entry of the mailbag, while Josh looks into what made Miguel Andújar’s 2018 run work and whether he’s recaptured that form yet. Finally, Andrés wraps things up with a look into how Kluber has turned things around from an inconsistent start, culminating in Wednesday’s no-hitter.

Fun Questions:

1. How long do you expect the AL East to be a four-team race?

2. Will a team other than Seattle, Texas, or Cleveland get no-hit this year? (All six no-hitters this year have been split evenly against those three.)
